Tag Aviation Geneva (CH)

TAG AVIATION SA has been contributing significantly to the successful development of Geneva International Airport for many years. The construction of the new hangar for commercial aircraft and the new administrative offices of TAG AVIATION has now been completed. The gigantic building, which consists of a self-supporting steel structure, a metal scaffold and roof insulating sandwich panels by the Montana company, was completed within one year. The detail waterproofing in the upper area of the sandwich panels and at the mast penetrations was carried out using the waterproofing system Triflex ProDetail (fleece-reinforced) and
Triflex ProFibre (fibre-reinforced for all complicated and difficult to access connections). The variously designed joints and expansion joints support the dynamic and static loads of the roof, which measures over 10,000 m².

Refurbishment requirements

  • Particularly good adhesion to metal
  • Quick application
  • Waterproofing of hard-to-reach joints
  • Can be used in substrate temperatures from -5°C to +40°C
  • Meets the highest quality standards
